Really? You think Iowa gets 70+ points on Michigan today? I don't see it, I think Mich D's em up and slows this game down a bit. Hopefully some hot shooting can afford them to play some bench players more minutes and conserve their energy for Nebraska and hopefully a primetime MSU game on Saturday.

Iowa's D may be suspect, but that offense looked good enough to put up points on anybody (I know, I know, it was Illinois).  Hopefully they don't have any gas left in the tank today.

playing basketball in Madison Square Garden.  I wouldn't count on them "running out of gas".  We certainly didn't after a plane wreck and 4 straight games last year...

Hopefully, they run out of balls going through the basket with a Michigan player right in their face all day.  That sounds like a likely scenario to me...

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Steve Finamore, the coach of the East Lansing boys basketball team, has resigned.
Finamore was in his eighth season as East Lansing’s coach, leaving his mark on the Trojans basketball program with a combined record of 62 and 4 with two consecutive CAAC Blue Titles with a chance at another one this year.
The suspension stems from an incident in the hallway of East Lansing High School. A parent of one of the East Lansing players approached Finamore and was upset about that players’ lack of playing time. Finamore objected to the parents’ timing of the complaint and when Athletic Director Tom Hunt interceded, he and Finamore got into a shouting match.
Finamore was then told he was suspended.
On Monday, Finamore announced his resignation.

In other news, Foster Loyer reportedly has a torn meniscus.

Saw Noel Gallagher when he was in town and he had a Man City flag on display on the stage. I thought that was pretty cool, better than the performer coming in and stiffly wearing a hat/jersey of a local team just to get some applause.

I think the obvious bets here are Iowa +9.5 and under 150. I don't think the game will be that competitive though and if the line were -7.5 or something, I'd take Michigan.

Beating any team three times in one season isn't an easy task -- but I like our chances today, and then some, to do so.

Iowa has a great offense, but one of the worst defenses in the country. Couple that with Michigan's solid defense all season long, and I think that's a formula for another W, even if we don't shoot the lights out today. 

If we are shooting well, too, then...it's gonna be a long, long day for the Hawkeyes.

Go Blue!

Michigan is going to have a lot of drives and drive kickout 3s. Iowa shot well and probably will continue to shoot well, but the Michigan offense is way too efficient for Iowa to shutdown. Also, Michigan may force 15+ turnovers.
